Party Season Sewing Patterns Picks V1


It’s almost Christmas; in dressmaking terms it’s time to sew something new. This time of the year our social calendar is full of opportunities to shine in handmade clothes. Here are some of my party season sewing patterns & fabrics picks to sparkle your creativity.

Showstopper. Go all out with cut-outs, off- the-shoulders and luxurious fabrics.


Patterns: 1//B6413 Butterick by Gertie . 2//No Patterns Needed DIY Couture. 3//No.7 VANLØSE by How to do fashion. 4// Dorothy Dress by Sew La Di Da Vintage. 5//Grasshopper by Capital Chic. 6//Kim Dress By Hand London 7//Billie Collection by Foldline. 8// Saler Jacket by Pauline Alice. 9//Elisabeth by Named.

Fabrics:A//Gold Metallic Brocade By Joel & Son. B//Matte Sequinned Tulle Fabric – Copper by Truro Fabrics. C//Luxurious Triple Velvet by Minerva.

Minimalist.  If you seek elegance in simplicity there are a lot of choices of sewing patterns. Pick simple lines and geometric shapes. Classic fabrics like Crepe, Silk and linen would match perfectly.
